About Living Koko

Slave Free Certified, Zero Waste Manufacturing Space, Intergenerational Knowledge on cacao cultivation and chocolate making.

Please give us your elevator pitch:

We create bean to bar chocolates, intentional drinking cacao (ceremonial grade), cacao husk tea and a range of cacao skin care products in our zero waste manufacturing space based in Braybrook, Melbourne. We work with our village farm in Vaiusu, Samoa and over 130 domestic plot village farms in Samoa, my home lands. We cultivate cacao using traditional indigenous methods of farming and are slave free certified with full traceability of our cacao. Each of our vegan, allergy safe and gluten free products is created and lovingly wrapped in Melbourne. We are grounded in tradition and proud to bring you the purist form of cacao from our villages to yours.

What problem is your business solving?

Provided incredible delicious slave free certified cacao products. Supporting Pacific village economies with fair ethical trade.

Can you tell us a little about your background and where the inspiration came from for your business?

My family have worked with cacao for generations, understanding indigenous ways of farming and also supporting the export of cacao from Samoa to Europe. Its an honour with cacao medicine and to have the means to offer it to the world.


"This is beautiful chocolate! It is very hard to stop once you have had a taste. A perfect addition to any grazing platter or just on its own with a coffee. I highly recommend. Thanks Living Koko for my new favorite treat."
